Gustav Holst The Planets, Op. 32  


The MPO officially opens its 22/23 Concert Season with Holst’s masterpiece, The Planets. 

The epic orchestral suite was described as “a series of mood pictures” by the composer, with the musical traits capturing the character of each planet allegedly inspired by eminent astrologer Alan Leo. 

Principal Conductor Sergey Smbatyan leads the MPO on a spatial journey musically evoking English folk song and the works of leading 20th century composers Schoenberg and Stravinsky rich in orchestration and rhythmic elements. 

This concert is presented with the support of MeDirect, MAPFRE MSV Life and Hilton Malta.

Groups of at least 4 people are entitled to a complimentary parking ticket. These can be collected at the foyer prior to/following the concert.
